Chotto Ghetto – “New Horror”


Chotto Ghetto are a six-piece from Los Angeles, churning out an excitable rock sound steeped in post-hardcore, punk, and metal influences. The band’s new full-length WILDFIRE is described as a “sci-fi-themed concept album,” — and specifically a “loud, anthemic, ambitious, apocalyptic political sci-fi thriller.” The industrial guitar tones and forceful energy reminds fondly of ¡Forward, Russia!, particularly on the track “New Horror” — and especially when the rhythm section hits in full past the one-minute mark. The passionate vocal presence and sweltering guitar distortion combine with frantic percussion for an excitable feel.

Stream WILDFIRE on Spotify and all major streaming platforms.

“New Horror” and other memorable tracks from October can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2019’ Spotify playlist.
